On May 2, 2017, OneBeacon entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Intact Financial Corporation in an all-cash transaction for $18.10 per share, or roughly 1.65x tangible book value (the “OneBeacon Transaction”).  Since the OneBeacon Transaction was set at a fixed price, OneBeacon’s results were economically transferred to the buyer at signing.  The transaction is expected to close in the third or fourth quarter of 2017 and is subject to regulatory approval and other customary closing conditions.  Including the estimated net gain of $116 per share from the OneBeacon Transaction, book value per share would be approximately $914 and adjusted book value per share would be approximately $896 as of June 30, 2017.

Curt Morgan, Vistra Energy’s chief executive officer, remarked, “Vistra Energy’s second quarter results were strong despite some headwinds, including a lackluster start to the Texas summer and an unplanned outage at Comanche Peak Unit 2, which began on June 5.  Our solid performance for the quarter is a direct result of our persistent cost management and the consistently robust margins realized in both our wholesale and retail segments.  In addition, our operations performance initiative is well under way and, while we have not yet finalized review of the entire fleet, we already expect to capture approximately $28 million of incremental EBITDA in 2017 as a result of this process.  This incremental $28 million of EBITDA translates to a full year run-rate in the range of $45 to 50 million based on the reviews we have completed to date.  Also of note thus far in 2017 are the acquisitions of the Odessa plant and the Upton 2 solar development project, both of which are consistent...
